    iPod Touch at Center of Middle School Sexting Scandal

    Posted: 19 Apr 2010 11:34 AM PDT
    [​IMG]Police busted a middle school boy for renting out his iPod Touch packed with sexy photos and videos of underage girls. The iPod Touch’s large storage capacity and big screen were put to use for an increasingly common kind of extracurricular activity. The boy’s business was halted when a renter of the illicit images was caught

    Damn, they're starting young huh?

    Question is tho, was he renting it to adults or to kids? Underage pics being viewed by adults is obviously scandalous and a major crime that should be punished...but when it's a kid sending another kid a pic...well it's just kids being kids....teenagers are horn balls....you can't put someone in jail if it's a 16 year old looking at a 16 year old.

    What would be the difference between doing this on an iPad or a Notebook?

    No matter what the technology, there will be those that find ways to exploit it for illegal purposes.

    How is this incident any different than when boys rented out magazines to their friends 10, 15, or 20 years ago?

    Well, those would probably receive some school punishment also, if any of it happened at school.

    But yes, this was worse, as it involved photographing, and distributing pics of, underage girls. (even if the boys involved were underage too.)
    People have been raising the furor levels, and making harsher and harsher laws about that, in recent years.

    So now, that full furor, and those laws, will hit those boys.
    That would be how it is different.

    Hello there,
    I currently go to the high school where they first caught kids sexting. It is actually a crime because it is possession of child porn. The first kids who got caught doing this got community service because it just wasn't tought that such a thing was against the law. Now, students will face sex offender charges if anyone is caught as told to us by our county and city level officers.
    Just thought I'd share to the people that thought this was just a teens being teens kind off thing.
